BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF OUR PROGRAM AND HOW IT WORKS

Our program entails Four Stages of Empowerment, each stage takes 30-Days to complete, if someone fails a drug test they get pushed back a stage and we take the resident/member to Detox and pick the person up afterwards and are allowed to come back to the house as long as they can test clean.

Also, we classify residents/members coming in as being either High-Risk or Non-High-Risk. If a resident/member coming in is classified as being High-Risk (All Opiate Users are Classified as being High-Risk) - than the resident/member classified as high-risk is drug tested every two-to-three days (THIS KEEPS THEM FROM DYING), resident/members that are Non-High-Risk are drug tested avery four-to-six days, and the testing is always done randomly unless we have a reason to suspect that someone is dirty. Also, All the food is provided, 100% of all a resident/member needs is also provided like the bed-sheets, linens, toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning solutions, etc, so no out of pocket cost other than their membership dues and fees and maybe their personal hygiene products. The dues and fees are a $200 deposit coming in and $150 per week due on Fridays. If the resident/member coming in is on a fixed income such as SSI or SSDI benefits, their dues and fees are $600 for the entire month and the deposit is waived. We also have a program for indigents, we classify a resident coming in with no financial assistance or no money or job as being what we call a Level-01 Intake, that just means indigent. That resident/member is given a week to find a job and a second week to start paying the house at a rate of $200 per week until they get caught up. We assist with job-searching, all houses have a home computer they can use to do their job searching. We can only intake or keep a maximum of two Level-01 residents per house. We also have two transport vehicles and drive people to 12-step fellowship meetings every night, we also provide transportation to and from any doctors related to the residents recovery, for example, the MAT residents have to see a doctor every week and fill their scripts weekly as well. We assist the resident/ember coming in get to the doctors for the MAT - Medically Assisted Treatment of Suboxone/Subutex.
